Okay, so I was making Christmas cookies, and since no holiday cookie repertoire is complete without Peanut Butter Blossoms, I began to cream the butter and realized when I got to Step 2 (cream peanut butter with butter), I realized…I HAD NO PEANUT BUTTER! As Scooby Doo would say, “Rut-roh.” So, I did what any creative eater would do — I improvised and substituted NUTELLA for the peanut butter and added 1 1/2 teaspoons of cocoa powder, following the rest of the recipe as written. As it turns out, I like the improvisation better than the original, and so did my daughter. Word to the wise, though…if you belong to a warehouse membership club, it’s cheaper buying Nutella there than to buy it in the grocery store. Enjoy!
